Gig Harbor, Washington – The Maritime City
Neigborhoods of Gig Harbor
If you’re looking for a peaceful place to settle down (or hey, even visit for a relaxing weekend getaway), Gig Harbor is that quaint, maritime village you’ve been looking for. It’s simple: people move to Gig Harbor, love it, and stay.
While enjoying a cruise around the harbor on a sunny day or walking the dog along the scenic waterfront (with frequent stops at the many shops and art galleries dotted along the way) can be considered serious pastimes in friendly, calm Gig Harbor, it’s important to note that “peaceful” and “calm” should not be mistaken for boring! Some event or other is always going on: Gig Harbor’s rich history as a fishing village and its active arts community make it a hub of cultural gatherings (think food, art, music, and more food), and its lively watersport culture make it an oasis for boaters, paddleboarders, kayakers… and the list goes on and on.
